Dear colleagues,

We have a project which includes long strings of embedded text in Word. Because these tables are "pictures" we cannot export them into Excel, which we would like to do in order to get an accurate word count as well as translate using a CAT tool.

If possible, we would like to avoid manually editing the individual text boxes in these tables and/or having to create new tables from scratch. Does anyone know of a quick and easy way to export embedded text into another program (Word, Excel, etc.) so that we can work more efficiently?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

Todd and Monica
